It is my sad duty to report, one of our pilots, members and friends lost his life shortly after launch yesterday at Crestline. Larry Heidler launched around 2pm in typical windy summer conditions, got turned hard right and impacted the tree in the middle of the setup area. (Kennys tree)
I can only imagine the depths of sorrow his wife, Bonnie, and their family, must certainly be enduring now and unfortunately for the coming times, not to mention the life cut short by this seemingly random, yet preventable tragedy.
Details regarding memorial service will be posted here as they are received.
